Extracting milk from a cow is much easier than extracting it from a coconut, largely because of cows’ soft outer shells and tendency to accumulate on trees’ lower branches. Celebrate nature’s most convenient dairy dispensers with today’s Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of in-store fountain dairy products and groceries at Oberweis Dairy.
Oberweis Dairy thrills lactose lovers with an array of creamy treats, partnering exclusively with farmers who have pledged to raise cattle without the use of artificial hormones. Load up your oral interior with the calcium-soaked sweets of the fountain menu, home to an assortment of shakes, malts, floats, smoothies, sundaes, ice-cream scoops, and candy-infused soft-serve Frostbites ($3.99). The Banana Royal, a signature sundae, rules over taste buds with the benign power of vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry ice cream, hot fudge, whipped cream, roasted pecans, and a well-trained army of fruit ($6.99). Oberweis's fountain goodies are administered with glassware and metal spoons, harkening back to the old-fashioned ice-cream parlors that provided all human sustenance prior to the invention of fire. Act fast to redeem this Groupon, since it only lasts until the end of April.
Almost 100 years ago, Peter J. Oberweis found himself with a surplus of milk. Rather than throw it out or freeze it into popsicles, Peter began selling it to his neighbors, an endeavor that was so popular that he began a milk-delivery service in 1927. Fast-forward to today, and Oberweis Dairy still delivers glass bottles of creamy milk to doorsteps. The small family-owned dairies that produce milk exclusively for Oberweis pledge never to use artificial growth hormones, therefore imbuing craft cheeses, super-premium ice cream, and yogurt with fresh, unobstructed taste. Oberweis partners with other like-minded companies to deliver such items as certified-humane Phil’s Fresh Eggs, Chuckanut Bay Foods cheesecake, and Connie’s Pizza to homes or to sell them at the company’s various retail locations.
